COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The No. 8 Virginia field hockey team (11-7, 3-3 ACC) fell 2-1 at No. 3 Maryland (14-3) on Tuesday (Oct. 25) at Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md.
The Cavaliers outshot the Terrapins, 19-6, and had a seven penalty corners while Maryland only had one. Maryland’s Sarah Bates logged a career-high eight saves. Senior Riley Tata (Virginia Beach, Va.) scored the lone goal for the Cavaliers, her 10th of the season.
“This team is too good to accept a moral victory, but we played well in many aspects of the game,” said Virginia head coach Michele Madison. “We need to go back to the grind of working on finishing.”
Maryland took a 1-0 lead, scoring off its only penalty corner of the game 23:23 into the contest. Virginia evened the score when Tata knocked in a rebound off the goalie’s pads six minutes later.
The Terps retook the lead 10 minutes into the second half, with Madison Maguire knocking a pass from Emma Rissinger into the net.
This was the first meeting between the two teams since the final regular-season game in 2013 and the first meeting of the two teams as non-conference opponents since 1982.
The Cavaliers will wrap-up the regular-season schedule on Sunday, Oct. 30 when they host No. 17 James Madison at 1 p.m. The game will also feature the annual Senior Day recognition ceremony, when all nine of UVA’s fourth and fifth years will be honored in an on-field ceremony shortly after the conclusion of the game.
